Silent Cinema presents: Blighty
This 1927 silent is a profound and intimate war film with no battle scenes.
Dir Adrian Brunel
With Jameson Thomas, Ellaline Terriss, Godfrey Winn, Lillian Hall-Davis
With live piano accompaniment by Costas Fotopoulos
A war film with no battle scenes, Blighty traces the course of the war from its beginning to the first Armistice, focusing on the effects – both profound and intimate – on those left behind on the Home Front. One family is transformed by the conflict, while hints of the new social order to come surface in its conclusion.
